A Housekeeping Notice and some Odds and Ends
I have been tinkering away behind the scenes here. The resource branch of the site, which is currently here, is not meeting the needs of this blog. Thankfully, the lovely people at Dalhousie University have given me webspace! So, as soon as I can find the time to imput the code, I should have a lovely new site that will be much easier on the eyes and easier to get around as well. (Having three pages for Jane Eyre illustrations is just silly, and I haven’t even started posting items from my personal collection yet!) As always, contributions will be most welcome. I am hoping that copyright and storage quotas will also allow me to find some stable homes for the tons of radio, film, and audio adaptations I have been reposting ad nauseum. There’s hope.
Also, I have already set up a forum for extended discussion. I hope to get that up and running with the website. The archives, are still in a terrible mess and I apologise for not making more progress in indexing everything.
While I am at it, I have to messages for my readers in general. First, a lot of my readers have been sending me their stories lately. I would like to hear more of them! You can find my email address through my profile. Also, I have the constant problem of links expiring. If you have had this problem and you want to have a file reposted it is best to email me directly. I often find it difficult to find which program, song, or file you mean when your message is only left in the comments.
Now, for some news!
Bronteblog has found a few more names for the supporting cast of Jane Eyre 2006.
Speaking of Jane Eyre 2006, I am sorry to say that the BBC has blundered… Following the lead of imdb, who despite my warnings did not fix the error on their page in time, the BBC have linked to the wrong Ruth Wilson. I must make this clear, since it is actually confusing some people… Jane Eyre is being played by the 24 year old Ruth Wilson and not the one who is 48. This is a mistake. I have written again, but by the time they catch it we might have our DVDs of the series already! (now, there’s a happy thought!) (To make matters even more interesting, we now have THREE, three, count ’em three Ruth Wilsons!) I have already written to the BBC to point out the mistake.
One more bit of news… I am in anticipation that there will be something fun and surprising for those readers who admire the BBC’s 1973 production of Jane Eyre, in the coming weeks- I hope. It may all come to nothing, but we’ll see.
